CHICAGO — Last week, the American Meat Institute unveiled a new web site which was designed to help meat and poultry processing companies develop and implement sustainability programs. A.M.I.’s Sustainability Committee, chaired by Paul Rutledge of Johnsonville Sausage, LLC, and Leigh Ann Johnston of Tyson Foods Inc., developed the site.

Site information is grouped in key areas that fall under the sustainability umbrella: caring for the environment, caring for livestock, benefiting communities, ensuring safe and nutritious meat and poultry and caring for employees.

The site was launched at the end of A.M.I. Chairman Rod Brenneman’s tenure. As president and chief executive of Seaboard Foods, Mr. Brenneman initiated an effort to enhance A.M.I.’s sustainability efforts through expanded education and through a dedicated web site that consolidates sustainability resources for the meat industry’s needs.
